    Hi All

    Since waking up from Bypass surgery, i have been feeling the cold. My husband is absolutely convinced that there is something wrong with me but i’m not so sure as i have met others who have also said that they now feel the cold following their surgery.

    What is everyone else’s experience? and do you know why we suddenly feel the cold when previously we have normally felt the heat?

    I really feel my thermostat got cut away with the surgery!!! Have taken to climbing inside a sleeping bag whilst watching TV in the evenings (and have the photos to prove it!!! lol)

    I haven’t had my op yet am still waiting for the date, but have lost 31lb on pre-op diet and am constantly cole. I dint realise losing so little would make such a difference. I have always been too warm but am wearing a thick cardi as we speak- I didn’t wear one in the house all winter!

    Hi Peachie

    Wow That’s an amazing weightloss already – well done you for sticking so well to the pre-op diet.

    I can match you on the thick cardi as i have mine on too – I’m sure its one i must have borrowed from my Gran at some point as its not exactly high fashion…. but i don’t care as its keeping me warm lol

    Hi Andy

    Initially i put feeling cold down to my body redirecting my blood to my op site to help with healing and that was why my extremeties were feeling the cold. But 4 weeks post op – i’m no warmer!!! At this rate i’m not looking forward to winter!!! lol

    Flipping freezing all the time!!! so funny when i never even owned a coat before. It is just something to do with the op I think and also the insulation we are all losing. LOL.

    I am looking forward to wearing nice jumpers that I never could before – strappy tops was my limit with a very light cardi in the winter.

    Glad you are getting on ok Tinks. Hope to see you soon.

    Thanks Tinks, I have another 8 weeks to go on the diet (not had op date yet but the say it may be august). I’m really determined to stick to it and luckily it’s like a switch has been flicked in my mind, the only thing I’m struggling with is the lack of variety – I am so bored of carrots!

    Hi Mandy

    That interesting that Mr Slater was expecting you to say you were cold. I’m going to mention it to my consultant Mr Kelly when i see him on 4th July.

    Hi Tinks,
    Come to mention it I am always cold and I am now nearly 12 weeks post op, could be down to the weight lost or maybe the lack of food but I am down at Chichester this Thursday (16th) to see the dietitcian and will ask her. I normally only wear teeshirts and vest tops even in the winter months but at the moment I am wearing sweat shirts and jumpers strange. By the way brought some cous cous today and will try it tomorrow.

    Hi Karlos,
    I am nearly 12 weeks post op and have lost nearly 5 stones (hope to hit the 5 stone mark this week) and I have found I have developed bones as well. I now have a chin and cheek bones plus a rib cage is beginning to form. I have a waist which I have not seen in years and the slimest ankles I have ever had. Love discovering new bits of me.

    PS well done on your weight lost, amazing.

    Hi tink

    I’m the same, 12 weeks post op and you can regularly find me sitting on the settee in my pj’s and my snuggle sack over my legs, that’s the worst of it really my legs get really cold and stiff but I have found that at work I can’t sit for a long period of time, as I used to, before my bum gets very numb.

    By the way, I have hip bones, found them this morning, I knew I’d put them somewhere 25 years ago…..

    Take care

    Love
    Lesley
